Xplain Corp. and
IDG World Expo are bringing back the Special Interest Pavilions for the upcoming
Macworld Conference & Expo in San Francisco.
|<?php virtual(“/includes/boxad.inc”); ?> |
Pavilions differ from the booths found on the show floor in that they organize companies in specific areas based on the products and/or services they offer. This makes it more convenient for attendees looking for information on a particular product or technology to find and compare all of the companies in one place.
Special Interest Pavilions being offered for Macworld San Francisco include SciTech; MacTech Central; Enterprise, Networking & Server Solutions; Bluetooth & Wireless Technologies; Digital Media; QuickTime; Business Solutions; International; and Education, Edutainment & Assistive Technologies.
Running for the past couple of Macworld Expos, the pavilions have attracted companies such as Metrowerks; PowerSchool; Totally Hip Software; Toshiba; Sybase; and others. The upcoming show will be the biggest yet for the pavilions, which will occupy approximately 15,000 square feet in the North Hall of the Moscone Center.
Xplain is also offering a $1,000 early bird special for companies that sign-up before Oct.31, 2002, bringing the cost of a pavilion to $2995. More information on the pavilions can be found on the Xplain Web site .

MacTech Magazine, also announced today that the magazine has hired author and columnist Dave Mark as the magazine’ss editor-in-chief. Mark is not new to the pages of MacTech; he previously wrote MacTech’s Getting Started column for 7 years.
